    low LH/FSH.. high estradiol
    on: 2014-11-01 02:46:12
    Hello and thanks for providing this Q&A section on this fine website.I am an experienced user and am 45 yrs. old with about 30 yrs. lifting experience.About a month ago I got bloodwork done for the first time, through private md labs, which is a great service. Got the female hormone panel done and found out that my total test was greater than 1500, estradiol was at the high end of normal (41.4), but most worrisome was that my FSH was .2, and LH the same .2. Both are extremely low. My last cycle was 20 weeks of 750mg test e/wk, equipoise 600mg/wk and at the begining Anavar 60-80 mg per day, .5mg anastrozole 2x/wk, and 250iu HCG 2x/wk. I ran out of HCG early, around week 16, as I must have misjudged how much I needed for my cycle. I havent done any PCT just going to use a low dose of test, 100mg 3x/wk for a few months along with adex. During that cycle my sex drive wasn't very high and it still isn't. Not like it usually is when I take test. If my body is shutdown shouldn't I still have a good sex drive since I am using test? Should I get some HCG to try and get my body online again? Would that even work considering the low dose of test I am using. I get all my products through NAPS, which is great, but can't exactly get anything in a hurry. Even though I plan on staying on test so long as I am able, I dont like the idea of having non-functional testes.Would a large dose of HCG followed by consistent HCG therapy get me going and keep me going? HCG is relatively expensive so I want to know that it is worth it. Also once reconstituted wit bac water, how long is it good for? Also, do you feel that my estradiol is high, even though in"normal" range? thank you!

    Hey brother, as long as you are using gear, on cycle or on HRT, you are not going to be able to maintain a strong natural production or a strong signal of LH/FSH. You can continue using HCG through your cycles and HRT if it makes you feel better, but if you are administering exogenous steroids year round, your not going to recover. This is something that many 45 year olds have to come to terms with, steroid users or otherwise, just due to age and the decline of natural hormone production. If you were 10 years younger, or more, I could see how this could be a bigger concern, but at 45, you may be able to maintain a better quality of life, if you require HRT. 

    As for the libido issue, it sounds like something is off. With an estrogen reading of 41, you might want to lower that a little with adex. Thats where I would start and from there, see how your libido resonds. If that doesn't help, you might want to check your progesterone, but I have a feeling it will do the trick
